About the hall
Myall Hall, which celebrated its centenary in 2012, is an emblem of the pioneering settlers who made the Murray river plains their home. Most of the village settlers were connected to the early selectors, a mix of folk with British and European origins, who formed a tight knit community, and worked hard to get established and develop community facilities. The building of a Hall with a large bank overdraft brought them a sense of purpose and achievement. In 1912 the “grand opening” of the Myall Hall took the form of a concert, ball and large feast in an outdoor marquee.
Dances and balls were held regularly and later euchre was played in the ante room with ever increasing numbers of people travelling across the district. Church, sporting and social events were connected with the Hall. Moving pictures attracted large crowds. School concerts were popular events. During the great wars there were farewell presentations and welcome home occasions.
A Myall School Roll of Honour was hung in the Myall Primary School until it was closed in 1993, which now hangs in the Myall Hall.
